A Little Help From TYLT

A Little Help From TYLT 1

Simi Valley will always sound like it is some sort of technology destination. Perhaps because of the closeness in name to the popular Sim game franchise or even because it is another Si-prefixed Valley (a la Silicon Valley), there has always been a relationship to technology and Simi Valley in my brain. There isn’t any support of this idea either as the greater Los Angeles city is undoubtedly quaint and quiet in our few visits we’ve taken there. But could it be a tech something? Potentially–and if Simi Valley based tech innovators TYLT has anything to do with it, Simi Valley could become some sort of computerized mecca. The company makes really smart, bright mobile accessories from cases to speakers but have carved a place in the on-the-go charging station with products like their Energi and Zumo. We recently got our hands on their beefy PowerPlant, a tiny mega-machine that can bring your electronic device back to life in a pinch.

Inside Book Stand At The Standard

Inside Book Stand At The Standard 1

For the first time in a while, it seemed like last Thursday was one of those evening where there were so many things we had so many things we wanted to attend. There was the Munny show, there was the Charming Baker opening, and there was the opening of The Standard Hollywood’s Book Stand. The first two we had an idea of what to expect but the latter was the most intriguing as we hadn’t heard anything about it save for the hyper-clean website we had shared last week. What is it? An equally as crisp and clean and effortlessly cool pop-up plant and outdoorsy lifestyle store.

The Traveller: An Interview With Maya Erdelyi

The Traveller An Interview With Maya Erdelyi 1

Maya Erdelyi does not live in Los Angeles. A handful of months ago, on a cold evening in Echo Park, the animation artist and filmmaker was enjoying one of her final nights in town with a cup of tea at her dining room table. “I guess I move around a lot,” she says with a smile. “It’s good for me—difficult sometimes, but ultimately, it’s very stimulating and inspiring. New Orleans, where I’m moving, is a culturally rich place: I’m excited to learn about it—and now I can officially say I’m Tri-Coastal.”

She’s moving to the Southeast to be with her boyfriend, the gallery director of the May Gallery & Residency. Maya has been in Los Angeles for three and a half years after what feels like an incredibly long life spent traveling and learning. Los Angeles is one of those places Maya never considered or imagined she’d move to but it was necessary that she come here and it will never not be a part of her. “I’m always going to come back here. To spend time with friends, go to the desert, and work with people on creative projects here,” she says of the city.

Homako Jewelry

Homako Jewelry 1

We knew that the geometric work of Homako looked familiar to us when we stumbled upon their Etsy page. Why is that? We’ve totally seen them at the Poketo store! The jewelry brand is from local Yoko Minemura who makes more than just folded fabric necklaces but also items like felted ball and golden pebble necklaces. She has a simplicity in her style that is all about studying form, patterns, and geometry.
